Global Battery Metals Market Insights

Battery Metals Market size was valued at USD 5.89 billion in 2021 and is poised to grow from USD 7.22 billion in 2022 to USD 34.4 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 22.4% in the forecast period (2023-2030).

The market for battery metals is driven by stationary battery energy storage and the expanding need for batteries in the automobile industry. As batteries make up the majority of EVs, the worldwide electric vehicle (EV) sector is expanding at an accelerated rate, which is driving the market growth. They will soon make up 40% of the overall cost of building an automobile. The lithium-ion EV batteries, for example, are made to last for ten years, but due to high operating temperatures, fluctuating discharge rates, and hundreds of partial cycles annually, they tend to degenerate within the first five years. Such batteries can be recycled or reused rather than being disposed of. These batteries can still have a second life and be utilized in less demanding applications like stationary storage services if they eventually fail to meet the requirements to be used in EVs. As a result, stationary storage devices are now a significant market factor for battery metals.

Market expansion was hampered by the coronavirus pandemic despite all efforts to overcome every obstacle in the past and in the future. Due to shipping restrictions, the pandemic had an impact on supplies as well as battery manufacturer and metal usage. Metal costs for batteries fluctuated as a result of the pandemic. Nickel, zinc, and copper prices decreased as a result of their surplus due to reduced consumption. However, due to limited production, higher transport costs during the lockout, and adequate inventory as a result of an excess, the prices of lithium and cobalt increased.

US Battery Metals Market is poised to grow at a sustainable CAGR for the next forecast year.

Global Battery Metals Market Segmental Analysis

Battery Metals Market is segmented on the basis of metals type, application and region. Based on the type of metal, the Battery Metals Market can be bifurcated into Lithium, Cobalt, Nickel and other segments. On the basis of application, the Battery Metals Market is segregated into Starter, lighting, and ignition (SLI), Electric vehicles (EVs), Electronic devices, Stationary battery energy storage (BES) and other segments. Based on region, the global battery metals market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America, and MEA.

Battery Metals Market Analysis by Metals Type

In terms of volume, lithium held the greatest share of the market for battery metals with more than 30%. Over the projected period, it is anticipated that rising consumer electronics and EV sector need for lithium-ion batteries will fuel demand for battery metals. Manufacturers have increased their production facilities in response to the rising demand for lithium-ion batteries. Lithium-ion cell plant projects are being manufactured by businesses like LG Chem, BYD, NorthVolt, and CATL, with yearly capacities of 70, 60, 32, and 24 GWh, respectively.

A result of its strong demand for electric vehicle batteries, nickel is anticipated to have the market's quickest growth during the projection period. For instance, due to a spike in EV sales and the quick uptake of nickel cathode chemistries like NCM 622, 523, and 811, the amount of nickel deployed globally grew by 57%. Since the 1980s, nickel-cadmium and nickel-metal hydride batteries have become very popular. Nickel's potential to offer increased density and more storage capacity at a reasonable cost is a key factor in its use in batteries.

Battery Metals Market Analysis by Application

The greatest revenue share belonged to starter, lights, and ignition (SLI), which was more than 27% of the global market share. For many years, SLI has been the primary application for battery metals. SLI batteries are used in traditional cars to start and ignite the engines and power the vehicle. Due to its power density, it is crucial since starting an engine requires strong currents for a brief time—roughly 300 amperes for a few seconds. Given the negative effects on the environment and other factors, this application category is expected to develop at the slowest rate over the forecast period due to the replacement of conventional vehicles by electric vehicles.

As a result, the market for battery metals' application category for electric vehicles is the one that is expanding at the highest rate. The four types of EVs include hybrid, plug-in hybrid, full EVs, and commercial vehicles. Each category has its own set of specifications, such as the fact that fully electric vehicles lack internal combustion engines and hence call for very big batteries. EVs often use lithium-ion and nickel-metal hydride batteries.

Global Battery Metals Market Regional Insights

Asia Pacific had an 87.7% revenue share of the market, dominating it. Over the course of the forecast, this tendency is anticipated to persist. China, which is the world's largest battery manufacturer, is responsible for this portion. China's ability to produce is due to its control of the supply chain. It supplies more than 20% of the world's supply of battery metals and accounts for around 80% of the global market for chemical manufacturing of battery-grade raw materials. Its dominance makes it the primary force behind the development of the global automotive sector following the COVID-19 pandemic.

North America was the second-largest regional segment in terms of revenue, with a share of the market for battery metals of more than 7%. The United States is the primary producer of batteries in the area, making it the main user of metals in North America. Production capacity in the nation is increasing as a result of rising EV sector demand. For instance, SK Innovation will begin operating its 9.8 GWh facility in Georgia in 2022. A second facility with a 10 GWh capacity would be built, the company said in response to the rising demand.
